Jay Barbree vs. President Obama

NBC’s Jay Barbree, and longtime space reporter, just ripped President Obama on MSNBC for his Kennedy Space Center appearance today (my transcript):

I’m a little disturbed right now Alex. I just found out some very disturbing news. Uh, the president came down here in his campaign and told these 15,000 workers here at this space center that if they would vote for him, that he would protect their jobs. 9,000 of ‘em are about to lose their jobs. He is speaking before 200 hundred, uh, extra hundred people here today only. It’s invitation only. He has not invited a single space worker from this space port to attend. It’s only academics and other high officials from outside of the country. Not one of ‘em is invited to hear the President of the United States on their own space port speak today. Back to you Alex.

So, any chance Barbree will be invited on Maddow or Olbermann tonight to discuss his displeasure with President Obama?
